Bangladeshi, South Asian wedding photography in Phoenix: Mehnaz & Manny

Couple weeks ago I flew over to Phoenix, AZ to photograph Mehnaz & Manny’s weekend long wedding events. Mehnaz & Manny picked the best time of the year for their wedding. The three-day event began on the day of Thanksgiving with a Muslim wedding ceremony at their residence. Second day event was at The Tempe Center for the Arts.

This brand new location was beautiful inside and out. The main hall was beautifully decoated by the friends and families, especially the stage for bride and groom was incredible! It’s really hard to find the traditional decores in the west. Most of the items were brought in from South Asia or Middle East at different times by different people. Putting it all together and making it look so gorgeous is a true work of art. Friends and families rocked the evening with awesome music and dance performances. They were all there to show Mehnaz & Manny their love and support.

Enjoy some highights from Mehnaz & Manny’s Bangladeshi Holud Ceremony, where friends and family bless the couple before the big event. This is when the festivities begins. Yellow is the main color of the day. Usually people wear bright, festive colors to add more to the already-colorful day. This is my most favorite of all the Bangladeshi events. I have had the joy of witnessing and capturing the moments from this day that I hope will bring the memories back to Mehnaz & Manny for many, many…years to come.
